Event Category: 
Talks

Inspired by but not limited to the recent success -- and frictions-- represented by the release of the film Crazy Rich Asians, please join us for the first event of the Transnational Asian American speaker series, “Crazy Rich Asians: Race, Representation, Resistance?” What happens when “Asia” is conflated with “Asian American”? How is this cultural moment linked to what has been called the Asian century? How are films like Crazy Rich Asians linked to a longer history of Asian/American cultural production? The panel features David Henry Hwang, Monique Truong, James Schamus, Marie Myung-Ok Lee, Jeff Yang, and Denise Cruz (moderator).  
 
October 23, 6 p.m., Diana Event Oval, Barnard College
Free and open to the public; no registration required.
